• ACTH
  • The sample is usually taken after administration of Corticotropin-releasing hormone or, more recently, DDAVP, which have been shown to increase ACTH production in active ACTH-producing pituitary tumors. (wikipedia.org)
  • Blood samples for ACTH, cortisol, prolactin (PRL), thyroid hormones, gonadotrophines, and estradiol tests were obtained at 08.00 a.m. All hormonal tests were measured with radioimmunoassay (RIA) method by using commercial kits. (thefreelibrary.com)
